Chris Weidman vs Gegard Mousasi at UFC 210 on April 8th in Buffalo, New York.
Last month Mousasi called out Weidman. He said: @ufc offered u the fight days ago, @ChrisWeidmanUFC .
Suddenly u have disappeared. Accept the fight already. I am waiting,Pal. #DontBeScared
At the time Weidman said he was healing up,
Now he says: “Once I heard he was calling me out, I said let’s give this guy what he wants. Now I’m going to throw this guy a beating.”
Mousasi says: The people have spoken and it is going down in Buffalo @ufc 210.
He told FloCombat that Weidman was waiting for his stitches to come out from the Yoel Romero fight. And he says: I really believe his style is perfect for me.
I think I could beat him in a pretty dominant fashion. I could take him down. I could ground and pound him. I could strike with him. He is a tall guy
so it’s easy to shoot on him. It’s all about setups. My wrestling is not good enough but my striking is better. I can compensate my striking with my
wrestling to get the takedown. That is a good fight for me. He is at the end of his career now”
Mousasi was willing to take a fight with Daniel Cormier on 2 days notice in July and also said he wanted to fight Anthony Johnson. But Rumble wasn’t interested
because has his sights set on a title shot against DC.
